Steady Hand (まぢいらいら某 maji iraira bō) also known as Japanese Scary Maze is a screamer flash game possibly made in early 2004. Unlike most screamers, the origin of this game remains unknown, but the earliest mention of this screamer was from a bulletin board forum for the game Fortress Forever, which featured a link to the screamer hosted from the site flabber.nl in the fall of 2004. Shortly after, a flash website Albino Blacksheep also featured the screamer in November 2004. This was one of the earliest maze games to date; being released earlier than The Maze itself.
The main menu features the Japanese title "まぢいらいら某" which translates as: "Steady Hand (Madji iraraibo)" and text below the title "STARTを押すとすぐに始まります作りが雑ですいません" which translates from Japanese to English into "game will start immediately after you press START".
The gameplay is to guide a dot through the maze surrounded by thin walls and to reach its end. The player advanced to the next level after reaching and clicking that "G O A L" button. Once before the player reaches the end of Level 2, a black and white portrait of a baby wearing a sheep costume (doing the harlequin fetus pose from Deathrealm's magazine cover) appears in a solid red background, accompanied by a loud roar. The audio for the screamer was also used in Zoeken.
There was an unofficial English version of Steady Hand in 2005 titled Tiny Dot Maze, which features a different menu screen, the "Game Over" screen being changed into "DAMN!" and nothing much else. The website for it claims to reward anyone who passes through Level 10 with $100. However, an image of Hai2u appears along with a puking sound instead. The screamer appears after the player dies, rather than just before the end as in the original. Once the screamer is over, the screamer will redirects the player to the page called "results.php", which has some text that saying "Whoops looks like our maze is a little buggy!!" (unlike the other fake websites that lies about their stuff that is a little buggy such as PhoneTrace and MedicalTracer which shows up after the shocking content is over.) along with a hyperlink button that let's the player to play the game again.
"Too bad ( X _ X )"
